Heh, I'll tell you what the *best* solution is: use the internalized
diff/patch library that CVS does. Not only do we get consistency, but
we have no external dependency on 'patch' or 'diff' at all, which is a
big bonus for Win32.

Of course, this is all just a pipe dream, since CVS's diff/patch
library is GPLed (it comes out of the GNU diffutils.) Maybe the FSF
would give us special permission to include an LGPLed copy in our
source tree.

Wishful thinking. :-)
